What I liked:
I LOVE fantasy books and this book did not disappoint me at all. It’s definitely for younger readers, but I still loved it so very much.
The characters were well rounded, the explanation of how magic and The Wonder and other things did NOT feel info-dumpy, and there were some excellent curveballs thrown in that I did NOT see coming. The storylines were brilliantly woven and executed.
Oh, and I read it in one day. Yep, another one-day-er here.
What I didn’t like:
It was too short. And it’s not really that short of a book. But I would have liked more.
Overall thoughts and opinions:
There are actually FIVE books in this series and I intend to buy every single one of them, plus search out the Danny stand alone in an anthology called Fell Beasts and Fair. So if that’s not a clear indicator of how I feel about this book, I don’t know what is.
I wrote Into the Wonder for an audience of one (my daughter). It’s always gratifying to find out that other folks like it, too!
